Sharing 160 years of a prestigious prep school through alumni magazine
Founded in 1851 as "The Family Boarding School," The Hill School prepares young men and women from across the country and around the world for college, careers, and life. Within the school environment and with a rigorous liberal arts curriculum, The Hill challenges its students to work hard; think and reason; be fulfilled; serve the common good; and be prepared to lead as citizens of the world, uniquely guided by our motto: “Whatsoever things are true.” Famous alumni include Former Secretary of State James Baker III, critically acclaimed author Tobias Wolff, and Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone.
Hill Ties, the biannual alumni publication, was a creative collaboration with circle S studio and the Communications team at The Hill School. The magazine consisted of various sections and features communicating to alumni as far back as 1906 to parents of current students. Each volume started with a story budget and target mail date. While both content and timing shifted from issue to issue, the client was always pleased with the final product and delivery.
In this issue of Hill Ties, the Hill School celebrated 160 years of educational excellence, shared the 2010-2011 academic theme of "Justice," announced their N.C. Wyeth Art Series, and produced an editorial on the college admissions process.
